Need for speed means Bluetooth tracing apps not much use: researchers

The need to contact people who may have been exposed to the coronavirus in a hurry means enhanced manual contact tracing apps like Australia's COVIDSafe might not be much use, Australasian researchers say.

The apps also need to have high enough uptake to be able to reduce the burden on manual contact tracing workforces and Australia's target may be too low at 40 per cent, they say.
